Vibe

Hanoi Village is a breezy and colourful escape from gritty K’Rd, with interesting murals and paintings.


Service

Prompt and efficient from the friendly family owners, recent arrivals from the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi.


Drinks List

Hanoi Village isn’t licensed, but don’t miss the robust Vietnamese-style coffee, served in dinky individual filters.


Highlights

Excellent pho Hanoi (Hanoi-style rice noodle soup). Most other Vietnamese restaurants in Auckland serve flavours from southern Vietnam, but Hanoi Village stays true to the cuisine of northern Vietnam. That means hearty soups laced with broths of excellent depth of flavour. Try the pho bo tai, beef noodle soup, an absolute Hanoi classic that’s perfect for chilly winter days.


Most Suprising Dish

Banh cuon, or freshly steamed rice paper rolls, are another iconic Hanoi street food dish, and we’re pretty certain no-one else serves them in Auckland. Try them with shrimp, Asian mushrooms and fried shallots. Good luck in resisting ordering a second plateful.


The Bottom Line

In a city of southern-style Vietnamese food, Hanoi Village is a real find, with excellent and authentic versions of street food classics from Vietnam’s northern capital.


A Reason To Return

The banh xeo, Vietnamese-style omelette, crammed full of minced poir, vermicelli and coriander.
